Kepstan® PEKK is a versatile material that can be used in many traditional thermoplastic processes such as injection molding and extrusion. The material properties offer ultra-high performance for the most extreme environments, including high temperature and demanding mechanical requirements.
Kepstan® PEKK maintains its high tensile strength at elevated temperatures over 150°C.
Kepstan® PEKK retains a high tensile modulus at extreme temperatures up to 165°C.
Kepstan® PEKK exhibits a regular and controlled wear rate even at high temperatures and above its Tg (165°C).
Compatible with Traditional Processing Methods
